The box is a die cut, Sissix die Box #2 from SU and the flowers on the card are the Sissix die "Layered Flowers #3". The cards are 3x3 and I used the Swiss Dot Cuttlebug embossing folder to add texture.
We made 8 sets of these. The boxes are filled with a dozen Dove chocolates. She only has two teachers in her classroom but we wanted to give the directors and teachers from her neighboring class a little something too. The cards for her actual teachers were larger versions of the same card and the cards included gift cards to Kohl's.
I can't believe the school year is over! Making these little gifts was fun and next year I am going to try to do it more often. Next week is the last week at the Spanish school, I plan on making something similar for the teachers there.
Supplies: Lovely Lilac, Whisper White, Green Galore, and Pixie Pink card stocks. Printed ribbon from Dollar bin at Michael's.

This is 12x12. The background paper is from the Baby Girl Nursery stack by DCWV. I used the Alphalicious cartridge on the Cricut to make the letters out of Apricot Appeal and Lime Green Sugared/Glittered cardstock. Super simple and came together quickly. I just love making name frames, so glad babies are being born so I can keep making these!

This is the card I made for them.
I started making a copper and white card because the 10th anniversary gift is supposed to be tin or metal. I struggled and struggled with that card and in the end scrapped it and chose "ever faithful- can't go wrong pastels" because I know Kristi loves soft colors.
Lots of layering and dimensionals here. I used the Storybook Cricut cartridge for the numbers. The DSP is Tea Party from Stampin' Up!. The So Saffron scallopped and simple DSP circle were done with Sissix dies on the Big Shot. The other layers were done with Accent & Elements Cricut Cartridge. The lime green layer was done with Sugared paper. The inside was layered too but I forgot to take a picture before I sealed the envelope. Hope you are having a wonderful day, thanks for stopping by.

The stems are from the retired Roses in Winter set by SU and the Mother's Day sentiment is a stamp I picked up a long time ago that did not even have a label. Here's a close up of the rose.
My Mom absolutely loves Roses, growing up we always had 20+ rose bushes in our yard and always had a fresh bouquet sitting in a vase under the large Virgen de Guadalupe picture in our hallway.
Try the watercolor technique, you'll get addicted like me! Hope you've had a wonderful day.
Supplies: Shimmery White, Regal Rose, So Saffron and White Card Stock. White craft ink (for roses), Regal Rose craft ink (for Mother's Day) and Clear embossing powder. Leaves were stamped with Mellow Moss classic ink directly on Shimmery card stock. Brads are from Soft Subtles collection and sheer ribbon is from JoAnn.

Remember, this was the baby's theme.
Here are a few of the other things I made.
The crib with the bedding was set up in the living room for everyone to see. I made this simple little banner using the scallop and plain circle dies with the Big Shot. The letters were done with the Alphalicious cartridge on the Cricut.
They had a cute stuffed monkey sitting inside the crib. I made this frame/sign for the monkey to hold. The letters were done with the Alphalicious cartridge and the monkey was done with the New Arrival cartridge on the Cricut.
I made another banner for the mantle, same supplies, tools and cartridges as other.
I made a few monkey things to set around. This was one of the large monkey faces I made. It's hard to tell but this is 12 inches in diameter.
Thanks for stopping by.........
ETA: I used Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa and Creamy Caramel cardstocks for the monkies. The favor boxes were done in Gable Green and the sheer brown ribbon is from JoAnn.
